Yeah, I am tracking the age issue so it will be post April 2018 before we moved anyway. So i think that box is ticked and i can get a certificate of conformity from TVR. I guess my key issue is actually import/shipping it across the Atlantic and looking after it in Canada. After owning it for over 10 years, can't think about it getting damaged or not being able to maintain it across there, but definitely not selling, she is a keeper to the grave!

Send me a PM via PH. I shipped a car from the UK to the US this year. I'll give you some idea of time/costs etc.

Nick, your profile does not let anyone send you a mail. But basically if the car is 15 years old when she lands in Canada you can bring her in.

Go by the date on the V5 or ask TVR to do you up a letter stating the date of manufacture. Remember 15 years, month of manufacture and you are golden.

If you have a 2003 S, you will be able to bring her in at some point this year. The process is very simple

Ha ha... haven't been by in a while. Now I'm here because I fell on my head a week ago.. lol. So looking around a bit more as I will likely be off work for a few. Soooo I still ended up finding a car like I mentioned previous.. I STILL would prefer to have a late model Tuscan instead, HOWEVER. One thing the purchase of said Solstice has prompted me clear a path to and from the garage-Ma-Hal I built way to long ago, but have never used. I can now get cars in and out, so the pathway to get the TVRs out is open and conceivable they might get out!! So overall, good news!


Someone did say the Solstice looks more like a T350C.. but I don't know those as well.

Here is where you are likely to run into trouble with Canada license and storage, unless you are a dual citizen or your are Canadian citizen complete with passport, and Canadian drivers license, that matches the same place of residence as your TVR is registered, you could be looking at some border crossing issues.

Questions like:
May I see your passport please?
Here you go.
SquashedCat said:
What is the purpose of your visit?
I am going to my second residence in the US.
SquashedCat said:
Where are you driving to?
To my second home in Chicago. Looking forward to the drive in this amazing car. Do you like it?
SquashedCat said:
And how long do you expect to stay there?
Not sure, but my visa allows me to stay up to three months, right? I might extend it a bit, if possible, or I might just return to Canada sooner.
SquashedCat said:
Going on to any place else?
Yes/No/Maybe
SquashedCat said:
May I see your drivers license please?
Here you go, but you enforce immigration laws, not DMV laws, so ...why?
SquashedCat said:
You are an American driving a Canadian registered car.
Yes. I have 2 residences. I keep this car in Canada, hence the Canadian registration. Just visiting the US with it for a short time.
SquashedCat said:
Why is your car registered at this address, but your drivers license has your residence at this other address?
I have 2 residences. This car stays in Canada for the vast majority of the time, so it's easier to do it this way. And I know I can do so legally.
SquashedCat said:
Could you step out of the vehicle please?
Sure.
SquashedCat said:
You don't mind if we search the car do you?
No. And if you have any questions about how to get to any parts of the car, feel free to ask me, if you like.
SquashedCat said:
It only gets worse.
What's the question?

The Solstice is inspired by TVR. Few people know that Bob Lutz visited the factory, talked about how much he loved TVR's smooth styling, and asked his designer to see what they could make in the same vein.
